Did as you said worked great. Then remembered I had downloaded manual as .pdf. The old saying. RTFB. everything was there. Thanks.Nope, its pretty easy. You can add it simply by going through Main Menu>Change Preferences>Manage POI>Add POI>Select the custom Shell POI>and then enter the location via address/long&lat/point on a map etc.
Glad to hear it worked out.I'm having trouble with the POIs. I've downloaded a few and followed the instructions here. They are in the North_America folder (there's North America and North_America but it looks like the maps are in the one with the _...)
I can't find them in the list of POIs on the TomTom now. Am I missing something? Are they already in other categories? How can I change what category they are in so I can find them?
ETA: I discovered that when I did the Map Update I never removed the old maps. I was installing the POI's into the old map, not the new one. When I deleted the old map and placed the POI's in the correct map directory everything worked. You can use this as a reminder to the new folks unpacking and updating their maps.
Hi johnbarry,Hi Digi-Flex
Do you know how one downloads POIs to a Mac. Unzipping the zip file is no big deal but finding where to place bmp and ovi files is a mystery. Thanks
I don't own or used a Mac but I'll try and help you out.Hi,
I hate to ask, but I don't know how to open or copy the downloaded POIs to the Map Directory on a Mac. Is this accessed through HOME?
You can replace the reference of North America with US_Canada as the NA maps was where I wanted to install the POI's.I'm trying to load a series of POI's as you suggest, but can't seem to find how to copy to my TTom. I have version 1XL.
I connected my TT device to my computer via USB and wanted to copy the two files in my map directory, as directed by "Super Moderator". Problem is, I can't locate this map directory. I have the US_Canada map installed - I don't have a card.
Please help me to better understand what I have to do.
